Colchester Borough Council is monitoring the situation closely and will continue to take action to minimise disruption and keep residents and visitors safe.
Coronavirus: updates, advice and guidance
We are responsible for maintaining these fixtures on Colchester's streets:
Street/Road name plates
Dog Waste bins
Benches and seats on the pavement
Heritage bollards, for example the Borough shield sign
Signs for pedestrians
We also manage the Culver Street and Head Street bollards. These are short posts preventing traffic from entering a road. These roads will be closed when the bollards are up. These are the times at which we put them up:
On Mondays – Thursdays the bollards will go up at 11:00am and we will put them down at 4:00pm.
On Fridays – Saturdays the bollards will go up at 10:00am and we will put them down at 5:00pm.
If you need to report a problem with the bollards then contact the Community Zone Team for the Town Centre on 07833 925492, or you can email email@example.com
The fixtures of which we don't maintain are managed by Essex County Council. They are:
Bollards including lit up boards
Pedestrian guard rails
Public rights of way signs
Directional signs and posts
